AV & VGA Detachable Cabling System

Audio/video base cables, pigtails, and wallplates

Reviewing the rapidrun system l.jpg
Reviewing the RapidRun system

  • Detachable interconnect system for A/V & VGA cables

  • Save termination hassle during installation

  • Opens new opportunities for contractors & installers

  • Flexible—many connector options, signals can be combined over one cable

  • Modular—easy to upgrade as applications change

  • Attractive pricing—good opportunity for profit

Who can use rapidrun l.jpg
Who can use RapidRun?

  • A/V installers

  • Contractors/builders requiring pre-wired VGA or A/V cabling

  • Data installers wishing to “cross-over” into A/V

  • Types of end-users:

    • Educational institutions

    • Conference rooms

    • Training facilities

    • Retail stores

    • Houses of worship

    • Residential home theaters

How to identify potential rapidrun customers l.jpg
How to identify potential RapidRun customers

  • Anyone who is buying the following:

    • Bulk VGA/UXGA cable

    • Bulk 5 coax/3 coax cable

    • Plenum VGA cables

    • Raw AV connectors (RCA, HD15)

    • A/V or VGA wallplates

    • Any long-length AV cables

      • RCA

      • S-video

      • Component video

      • VGA

  • These are candidates for RapidRun instead!

Why do we need this product l.jpg
Why do we need this product?

  • Less termination headaches

  • High performance

  • Saves installers time on large projects

    • No need to field-terminate VGA and AV connections

    • Time = $$$!!

  • Flexibility

    • Connections can change with applications

Without rapidrun l.jpg
Without RapidRun

  • A/V and VGA bulk cable pulled without connectors, then terminated at each drop

    • Field terminations might be difficult

      • Solder

      • Screw-down terminals

    • Field terminations may also affect performance

      • Inconsistent shielding, grounding practices

  • If applications change, new cable must be run

With rapidrun l.jpg
With RapidRun

  • Installer pulls base cable

    • Includes pulling cap on each end

      • Protection

      • Ease of use

      • ¾” conduit with 90° sweep

      • 15 lbs of pulling tension

  • Then, terminates to pigtail or wallplate with easy-to-use MUVI connector

  • Termination is clean, sturdy, and takes only seconds

How does it work l.jpg
How does it work?

  • The system consists of two major components

    • Base cable

    • Break-Away

      • Pigtail or wallplate

  • Installer plans wiring strategy, decides which signals will be used

    • Select base cable

    • Choose the proper Break-Aways accordingly

  • MUVI connectors make termination easy

What kind of signals l.jpg
What kind of signals?

  • A/V

    • Composite video (VCR, camera)

    • S-video (DVD, PC)

    • Component video (DVD, HD tuner)

    • Line-level audio (Stereo)

    • Digital audio (SP/DIF)


    • HD15 connector (PC monitor)

    • 5 BNC connector (RGBHV)

Base cables l.jpg

Slide15 l.jpg

  • What kind of connector is that?

    • This is a proprietary circular DIN-style connector. It can be referred to as a MUVI Connector”.

  • Can I get custom lengths?

    • Yes, custom-lengths will be available.

  • What about plenum jackets?

    • Some plenum-jacketed cables will be stocked, in various lengths. Custom-built lengths will also be available.

  • How is the connector terminated?

    • The conductors of the cable are soldered securely to the RapidRun connector. This is standard practice for factory-assembled cables, and results in a high-performance, highly stable connection.

More faqs l.jpg
More FAQs

  • How large of a conduit can I put it in?

    • 3/4” conduit, with a factory 90° sweep.

  • How long of a cable can I have?

    • Many factors can affect maximum cable length. For most applications, picture quality is maintained up to 150 feet. Analog A/V (composite, S-video, YPbPr), applications can sometime exceed this, going to 200 feet and beyond. The longest base cables that will be stocked are 150-footers.

  • Does it support Hi-Def?

    • Supports UXGA & YPbPr analog video, both of which support HD resolutions (including 720p and1080i). Length considerations should always be taken into account.

The last of the faqs l.jpg

  • How strong is the pulling eye?

    • The factory has tested the strength of the ring on the pulling eye, and pulling force should not exceed 15 lbs. If stronger pulling force is needed, a pulling aid that attaches to the wire itself can be used.

  • Who needs the RapidRun system?

    • Hotels, banquet centers, exhibition halls, convention centers, training rooms, presentation areas, houses of worship, conference rooms, classrooms, high-end home theater installations, auditoriums, transportation terminals, retail stores, etc.
